A Great New Day

Different People

There are some people who are “morning people.” These people have the uncanny ability to rise and shine, embracing the new day with gusto. Many times these people are more productive early in the morning rather than at night. However, these people are in the minority.

God and His Nature

There are many questions that man has about God concerning His nature and His being.

Without change, our standard of living would remain as poor as the ancients.

When People Face God...

Ignoring the Future

A sad reality of our modern world is how few people really expect to stand before their Maker one day. While many like to entertain the idea of a loving God and Heaven, the idea of a judgment scene is less popular. As man become more cynical, fewer people even consider that they will one day atone for their choices in this life, and even more cynically believe that if they do, they will be able to overcome it.
